Hello, I am new here, planning on taking the LSAT in a bit over 4 months and I’m planning on dedicating 8 hours a day.
So my question is for those that have been doing this, is it a general rule to accomplish all 800 hours in 7Sage? Or is it relative per person? please share your thoughts, id love to hear some.

    Bro you might want to reevaluate doing 8 hours a day. Studying for that long might just give you diminishing returns.

    Contrary to popular belief, I don't think it's the number of hours you put in that matters but how you study with the hours that you can dedicate to the exam. Sure you could do 8 hours a day but practice bad habits and end up not at your goal score. Of course you need to put in a sufficient number of hours every week, it seems like you have more than enough time to do 20-25 hours per week to study, which is more than enough so long as you have the right habits.

    You also have to take the 800 hours on the sage scheduling w/ a grain of salt. If you look through it, you are expected to do every PT 1-89 + M20. Not very realistic even for someone with all the free time in the world.

    I would suggest though to have at least 2 months before the exam taking full prep tests. That's at least 8 full tests, possibly more if you have enough time to take 2 or 3 per week (I say 2 max is enough). And again w/ taking prep tests it's not really how many you take but how well you review your tests afterwards, make a plan to improve on your weaknesses/sharpen your strengths, and make the exam a habit.
